Overview

Home to the towering snow-capped peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the wildebeests and gazelles of the Serengeti, and the legendary spices of Zanzibar, it’s no wonder Tanzania has captured the imaginations of many. Although it is a rising star on the tourist map, Tanzania is still a predominantly rural and agricultural society, and it has struggled to improve basic infrastructure and expand educational and healthcare systems. World Endeavors volunteers in Tanzania make a difference in the lives of the Tanzanian people through hard work and a commitment to promoting a brighter future for this extraordinary country.

 

ABOUT MONDULI

The district of Monduli is located within the Arusha region, in northeastern Tanzania. It is an extremely popular spot for tourists to learn how the local Maasai people live as well as observe the natural environment. Numerous attractions such as Lake Manyara, Mount Meru, Kilimanjaro, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro can be found nearby and are the wonders of the region.

 

Eligibility

Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older, though exceptions to this age requirement may be made on a case-by-case basis. Successful volunteers are hardworking, flexible, and open to truly immersing themselves in the culture. Keep in mind that all countries have different visa restrictions for varying types of passports.

“From my experience abroad, I gained a whole new level of confidence in myself. I went outside of my comfort zone to travel alone to a new country in order to help others. I gained a further appreciation for other cultures, and a knowledge that other parts of the world are extremely different and yet similar at the same time. I learned of my love to volunteer, and a deeper passion for traveling.”

- Samantha, Volunteer in Tanzania

Projects

World Endeavors volunteers in Tanzania live and work in the district of Monduli. World Endeavors volunteers in Tanzania can contribute to the following projects:

 

Housing

Volunteers stay in a shared volunteer house and stay in shared rooms by gender or with a local host family. Three meals a day on weekdays (two on weekends) are included during your stay. Meals are inspired by the local cuisine and consist of a lot of corn, rice, potatoes, and bananas. Beef, goat meat, beans, and a few green leafy vegetables will help to add nutrients to your daily meals.

Dates And Costs

The World Endeavors Volunteer in Tanzania program is flexible in duration and can be tailored to last between 1 to 12 weeks. If you have the time, we recommend a stay of at least 4 weeks. Admissions are rolling, and World Endeavors volunteers can choose when they would like to start their program. Due to holidays, traditional vacation schedules, and seasonal work availability, there might be better times than others to volunteer at a specific location or in a specific project.
